yesterday going to be above average for this time year making it into the mid-90s inland and i'll tell you just how hot we'll get today in the next couple of days in just a bit. over to gianna with a look at traffic. >> we go to the golden gate bridge now where so far, so good traffic is cruising along. we had some roadwork though that may still be causing delays on 101. it was a perfect end for america's space shuttle program. >> atlantis is home, its journey complete, a moment in history to be savored. >> coming up we'll have a live report from cape canaveral at 6:10. new this morning, police in fairfield are on the hunt for a suspect in a s.w.a.t. standoff that happened overnight. a 40-year-old man and his elderly mother got in an argument at dorel drive in paradise valley drive.
6:01 am
police satisfy he held a gun to her face and tried to choke her. police moved in after four hours. the man ran out and is still on the loose though no word if the woman was hurt. a community meeting to talk about a police shooting in san francisco turns into a shouting match. anne makovec is in san francisco to explain what happened. the police chief tried to talk. it was difficult because many in the crowd were not there to listen. good morning. >> reporter: he was hoping that this would ease the concerns of the community. it seemed to be the opposite. here's the footage of the police chief being shut down. [ screaming ] >> reporter: chief greg suhr left not long after that happened. a lot of bayview residents were
6:02 am
there to vent. >> a group of people that have been voice less, that have been victimized. countless stories. valid concerns are being raised. so what if it's not the most articulate way? it's still impassed and it's still a human response that end that's what we are seeing out here today. >> reporter: the meeting was held in response to a police shooting in this neighborhood in the bayview last weekend. it started as officers approached a 19-year-old man for fare evasion. he took off, he shot at them, they shot him and he died. here's his picture. kenneth harding a parolee from seattle wanted for questioning in a smoothing death up there. but a lot of people who came to the meeting last night said this wasn't really about him per se. it was more about years of bad relations between the police department and the community. they had several concerns saying it shouldn't have gotten as far as it did over the weekend, saying this man was shot in front of children and
6:03 am
that police officers basically let him bleed to death in the streets. so the police department obviously has a lot more work when it comes to community relations here in the bayview and greg suhr, the police chief, says he is planning more community meetings but none of those scheduled just yet. >> anne, do we know if there is any more evidence that was presented to the community? that was the intention. >> reporter: the main thing that the chief was going to do was present where the investigation is now. we had heard some information about the suspect with gun residue, gunpowder on his hand so that was kind of for lack of a better term a smoking gun for the police department. they said that that really proved that he was trying to shoot at them, because even the finer details in the case are still being debated at this point. a lot of witness say no this guy wasn't even shooting at the police. so the police chief really wants to get all the facts in
6:04 am
this case out. but again, the community says it doesn't even really matter, that the problem here has been a long-standing problem between the police department and the community. >> thank you, anne makovec in san francisco. not everyone at last night meeting came from the bayview and then tuesday night most of those arrested in a violent protest were from somewhere else. out of 43 people arrested on charges of vandalism or failing to obey a lawful order like getting out of the street, police say only 17 were from san francisco. and only one was from the bayview. richmond police are searching for a killer after another young man is gunned down in the streets. 20-year-old darrell russell was shot to death near a community center shortly before noon yesterday. police say someone got out of a car and shot russell at close range. the victim's grandmother lost another grandson in a shooting two years ago. >> i'm just tired. this is the second grandchild
6:05 am
i'm going to bury in two years. >> police have no motive for yesterday's killing but they are looking at possible connections to a double murder in the same area sunday night that may be gang-related. a university of san francisco student is one of three presumed dead after plunging over a waterfall at yosemite. all three were with a church group from the san joaquin valley on a day trip to the national park. witness say that the three had crossed a metal safety rail to take pictures in a swollen river above the vernal falls. a woman fell into the water. then a man and another woman slipped in trying to save her. their bodies, though have not been recovered. in response to a deadly crash at ucsf, it announced it's putting seatbelts in its shuttle buses. the university hopes to have the fleet outfitted by the end of august. state lawmakers are looking into why shuttle buses are
6:06 am
exempt from laws which require seatbelts. time now 6:05. we'll get another check of traffic and weather. i think everyone is in a better mood when it's sunshine with hot temperatures. >> you feel more awake, it's warmer. >> talk to strangers on the street. >> i don't know about that.

6:07 am
bridge, as well. here's live look at the upper denying. no delays heading into san francisco. metering lights off on the upper deck. traffic light at the toll plaza so far no problems off the lower deck into oakland if you are heading out of san francisco to the east bay. elsewhere 101 southbound out of marin county some slight delays, once you hit the golden gate bridge though so far, so good no delays into san francisco. these delays along 101 were due to roadwork. looks like they are wrapping things up. it's getting a bit better out there. that's traffic. back to you. >> thank you. the space shuttle era is now over. we are going to have a live report from florida on what's next for space exploration. >> plus, it's a sign of the times. how soon mail could be delivered just three times a week. >> and a heat wave melting numerous states. the age-old question a reporter asked with a car and some bacon and eggs. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:11 am
cape canaveral is cbs news' terrell brown. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. good to see you. >> now, the last time we talked to you, you seemed a little verklempf when you were describing what it was like to watch the shuttle land. >> reporter: it's one of those things. i have seen one before but you really never get used to it. you never know what to expect. i wasn't expecting to see it the way it did come down. never seen a night landing so that was fascinating to watch it go by and the crowd here so many people came out to watch this shuttle land to just sort of have that historical moment so they can say i was at the kennedy space center to watch the last shuttle land and the end of the space shuttle program. so very bittersweet for me even, you know? it's hard not to shed a tear and the great example judge just to show you how hop lar was, if you can imagine a concert with everybody holding their cell phones in the air, everybody had a camera, everybody had something they could take a picture with everybody wanting to have this moment.
6:12 am
for themselves. >> i would imagine that this is going to be part of the problem in the area is that all those people who come to see the shuttles take off or land, they are all going away because that's going to affect business in the area, right, tourism? >> reporter: right. and you have people that work here, as well. thousands upon thousands of people that are contracted to work out here at the kennedy space center, they live around here, they are part of the economy of this area and with all these jobs disappearing, it really is going to affect the terrain here, the area nearby, the local economy. what nasa is hoping though -- by the way, atlantis, which is over my shoulder, is going to stay right here at the kennedy space center. so they are hoping that if the shuttle stays here, that is just enough to bring people in from all around the world to pay their "respects" to it and try to give the economy a boost by tourism, if you will. >> terrell, so what's next for the u.s. in space exploration? >> reporter: we have a couple of different things on tap. nothing is for certain. if we go back in time, mercury gave way to gemini and gemini to the apollo and from the
6:13 am
apollo to the shuttle missions. we don't have that kind of definition right now. we don't know what's going to come up. we know commercial companies have been given the it's tok work on getting astronauts up -- the task to get astronauts up into the international space station and low earth orbit but nothing for the next few years and nasa has been assigned to try to build another spaceship to go beyond low earth orbit so we are talking about to mars maybe or to an asteroid about 2025 or 2030. >> in the meantime we'll depend on the russians. it will be interesting to see. terrell brown at cape canaveral. >> $65 million a seat. >> not cheap. terrell brown, thanks for joining us from florida. time now 6:13. some progress in the debt debate. why president obama is changing his tune. >> and soon no more naked images at the airport. the new software that is less invasive. we are cleared for take-off out of sfo today. finally making it to above average temperatures all around
